Professor Yunus celebrates with students

Chancellor Professor Muhammad Yunus joined students of Grameen Caledonian College of Nursing (GCCN) to celebrate graduations.

Forty-nine students graduated with a Diploma in Nursing Science and Midwifery in Dhaka.

They were joined by GCCN staff, including Principal Professor Frank Crossan and guests including GCU’s Professor Barbara Parfitt; Suriya Begum, Registrar of Bangladesh’s Nursing Council; and K M Ashaduzzaman, Managing Director of Grameen Health Care Services.

Professor Crossan said: “Congratulations to our graduates. We are immensely proud of them and of their commitment to their studies and wish them every success in their careers. GCCN is striving to improve the health of the nation and the lives of young women from across Bangladesh. The College educates young women to serve in the Bangladesh healthcare sector, demonstrating that Bangladesh’s nurses can undertake education at an international level and go on to high standards of clinical practice. GCCN's nurses have an excellent reputation and employers are very keen to offer them positions as soon as they graduate. Four of our earlier graduates have just completed a scholarship year in Glasgow Caledonian University in the UK, where they successfully studied for a BSc in Professional Studies in Nursing.”
